Tune into Children

Module 1-4

Ale Duarte (BRA)



The world is increasingly globalized, complex, digital, accelerated and full of information and demands, producing children who are tuned to this reality. We must develop a nee leadership approach to understand this „new child“, using a new look and perception of their desires and challenges.
  • How to use a „somatic approach“ to control hyperactivity, apathy, aggressiveness, anxiety and so many other dysfunctional behaviors of a child?
  • How to integrate body- and energy-related aspects into your professional practice?
The aim of „Tune in to cChildren“ is to help professionals in supporting children to reorganize and rebalance the autonomic nervous system at the biological/survival level, after being overwhelmed following a stressful or traumatic event, through the use of play and joyful movement, awareness of the self and others.

Ale integrates many practices, stories, videos, and demonstrations of the principles of this natural approach that he has found to be as effective for treating at his own office, schools, as it is abroad in humanitarian services.

„Tune in to Children“ is a method that restores self-regulation as well as a sense of aliveness in the child, promoting relaxation and wholeness.
